Snow cover can help provide a layer of protection against extreme cold temperature. The Waterville Plateau received a blanket of snow on November 30th
(Figure 1). At our WSU Canola Variety Trials across the state, plant counts are taken in the Fall and Spring to determine which varieties are best suited for winter survival within those individual regions.
Winter Survival and Stand Establishment are two of the many topics that will be part of our oilseed workshops scheduled for January 22 in Hartline, WA; January 24 in Richland, WA; and January 25 in Colfax, WA.
